Robert W. Whitaker Archive Site

We have been working to form a legacy site for Robert W. Whitaker. A site that contains ALL of Bob’s work. A collection of all his articles and audios (which we are transcribing to articles to make searching them easier). The most important function of this site is the search function. Being able to search ALL of Bob’s work via specific key words is imperative, and with this new site, we have been able to achieve that.

The new archive site is robertwwhitaker.net. For BUGSers this site will be a priceless tool for searching Bob’s thoughts on subjects. The site will also have 4 new articles automatically routating daily, so be sure to check it regularly to see articles you may have never read before.

So far we have loaded the old nationalsalvation.net site and the original whitakeronline blog. We are presently working on getting BUGS up there too.

To build this new site, maintain his other sites, hosting, security and build costs, so far we are at $2,000. I have set up a GoFundMe account to help off set some of these costs. If you are able to contribute some dollars to keeping Bob’s legacy alive, it would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link to the GoFundMe – gf.me/u/wi4kik

About Robert W. Whitaker

Bob Whitaker  has been a college professor, international aviation negotiator, Capitol Hill staffer, Reagan Administration appointee, and writer for the Voice of America. He has written numerous articles and three books in his own name. He is perhaps best known for being the creator of The Mantra, a strategy to fight White Genocide. Robert resides now in Columbia, South Carolina.

Robert Whitaker was born in 1941. He entered the University of South Carolina at age sixteen and was a Political Science instructor at the age of nineteen. He then received a scholarship to study for a PhD in economics at the University of Virginia. Two of his eight graduate instructors there later won Nobel Prizes in Economics.

Both future Nobel Laureates left the University of Virginia while Robert was there. Robert’s second reader for his dissertation, James Buchanan, was “forced to leave” when a new dean took over who had vowed to “clean out that nest of right-wingers in the Economics Department.”

Robert was a professor of economics but was unable to complete his PhD because his field of specialization, Public Choice (the field in which the two graduate professors later won Nobel Prizes) was disliked after the faculty had been purged.

Robert then became involved in political activism and intelligence work.

Robert worked with William Rusher, publisher of National Review, in turning the so-called “Wallace Democrats” into “Reagan Democrats.” This was a move that respectable conservatives opposed vigorously. Robert’s 1976 book, A Plague on Both Your Houses, attacking both the liberal establishment and the watered-down Republican opposition, was a milestone in this campaign.

Robert worked on Capitol Hill from 1977 to 1982. During that period, two of his most personally gratifying accomplishments enjoyed today by all of us were saving the Hubble Telescopes and preventing the Internal Revenue Service from imposing racial quotas on private schools.

Despite his criticism of Ronald Reagan in A Plague on Both Your Houses, Robert was a Reagan appointee in charge of all civilian security clearances and federal staffing.

In 1982 Robert conceived and produced an anthology for St. Martin’s Press, The New Right Papers. It explained the strategy that led to Reagan’s 1980 victory by the people, including Robert himself, who made it a reality while conservatives dithered.

Robert left official Federal service in 1985. His third book, Why Johnny Can’t Think: America’s Professor-Priesthood goes into much more than just academia.

The Practical Wisdom of Robert Whitaker

This piece is written by Dave. It was an email from him regarding the importance of the archive site we are building of Bob’s work. I asked his permission to share this on BUGS, as it is great insight. Thanks, Dave! (More on the new archive site soon.)

I will tell you why I think Robert Whitaker’s writings are important.

First, some digression:

I am unique in that I come from a family were everybody marries late. I am no exception. For example, I am 67 years old, I married for the first time in my mid-fifties, and I now have a five year old child.

My whole family has been like that for generations. My paternal grandfather was born in 1883 and I knew him well into my teens. He died in the late 1960s in a world he could not recognize. My maternal grandfather, born in 1890, grew up in Virginia among aging Confederate Civil War veterans who he came to know well.

My grandfather told me when I was a child: “You cannot understand American history if you do not understand that the wrong side won the Civil War.”

You see, he had the actual face-to-face first person testimony of the Confederate veterans who fought the Civil War, so he knew what the Civil War was really about. It was an assault of European Imperialism on the American people. The Confederate veterans of the Civil War clearly understood it as such. The Union veterans, in contrast, were victims of
the propaganda of European Imperialism (sound familiar?).

This brings us to the unique importance of Robert Whitaker. Robert Whitaker understood that the memory that constitutes real history only lasts for three generations, and this is because the influence of face-to-face first person testimony only lasts three generations. Death erases accurate memory beyond three generations because you can only interface with three generations (normally) within one lifetime and therefore you only get three generations of first person testimony told face-to-face.

It is death that gives propaganda its opportunity. You see, the Civil War was real to my grandfather, even though he wasn’t born until 1890, because he had access to the face-to-face first person testimony of those that actually fought it.

I am in a similar position regarding WWI and WWII. Even though I was not born until the 1950’s because my grandfather, who I knew well, was in WWI and because my father, who I knew well, was in WWII, those wars are real to me. This is the influence of face-to-face first person testimony. Because of this, I know things that students of written histories (propaganda histories) cannot know.

For example, my father was in the front line British and American assault forces that stopped the German and Dutch advance on Antwerp on News Years Day in 1945 (the last high causality WWI style battle that British and Americans were ever in). They then carried out the recapture of the Ardennes, penetrated the Siegfried Line, took the Rhineland, and ended up in warehouses on the Elbe River in May of 1945 awaiting the conclusion of the Battle of Berlin.

If you said to my father, “The British and American allies won the War in Europe,” my father would have rolled his eyes. Those British and American soldiers that actually carried out the conclusion of World War II in Belgium and West Germany knew that the actual outcome was a defeat, not a victory. It is pure propaganda that the British and American
allies “won the War in Europe.” The soldiers that actually fought that war knew it was not true. Leaving half of Germany and all of Central
Europe in the hands of the Communists was not a victory, it was a defeat, and that is how THOSE SOLDIERS perceived it.

You will hardly ever hear that told in any written history (propaganda history) of WWII.

Robert Whitaker clearly understood the difference between real history and myth. He was unique in this. He understood the role of face-to-face first person testimony and how and why real history dies within a three generation time frame. He understood clearly HOW propaganda finds its opportunity.

And this brings us to Robert Whitaker’s other great insight, and that is the role of slogans in politics. I never understood big league politics until I began to study Robert Whitaker. I never understood that big league politics is really about slogans and that there is nothing more important than finding effective and durable slogans. Effective slogans put paid to fake history. Robert Whitaker taught me that if you want to defeat fake history, (fake history being an artifact of the role of death in human life), you must find effective slogans.

That insight is pure genius. Robert Whitaker was a genius, a practical genius, and that is WHY it is important to preserve Robert Whitaker’s writings.

Bitter Irony

This post makes me laugh and cry. These are all Bob, in so many ways. He is missed every day. 

Someone sent me some quotes that appeal to my bitterly ironic sense of humor.

On the other hand, in the midst of all this bitterness is the one I live by:

“Be kind, everyone you meet is fighting a tough battle too.”

If you always remember that, you can have the bitterness all intelligent people learn, but you won’t HURT anybody with it.

Here they are:

Don’t kick a man when he’s down unless you’re certain he won’t get up.

Indecision is the key to flexibility.

You can’t tell which way the train went by looking at the track.

Be kind, everyone you meet is fighting a tough battle too.

There is no substitute for genuine lack of preparation.

This is as bad as it can get…but don’t bet on it.

By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.

Sometimes too much drink is not enough.

The facts, although interesting, are generally irrelevant.

The world gets a little better every day, and worse in the evening.

Someone who thinks logically is a nice contrast to the real world.

The other line always moves faster…until you get in it.

Anything worth fighting for is worth fighting dirty for.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.

Friends may come and go but enemies accumulate.

It’s hard to be nostalgic when you can’t remember anything good.

I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.

If you think that there is good in everybody, you haven’t met everybody.

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

One seventh of your life is spent on Monday.

The more you run over a dead cat, the flatter it gets.

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

Do unto others.

Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity.

Plagiarism saves time.

Teamwork…
means never having to take all the blame yourself.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups.

We waste time, so you don’t have to.

Go the extra mile. It makes your boss look like an incompetent slacker.

The Romans did not create a great empire by having meetings; they did it by killing all those people who opposed them.

If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos… then you probably haven’t completely understood
the seriousness of the situation.

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exist elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

As you journey through life take a minute every now and then to give a thought for the other fellow. He could be plotting something.

If you find something you like, buy a lifetime supply, because they will stop making it.

Always remember you’re unique, just like everyone else.

This Is Europa Podcast

This Is Europa Podcast with Jimmy, Hans and Myself.

https://thisiseuropa.net/podcast-ep18-the-mantra-movement-and-bobs-legacy/

“Africa for the Africans. Asia for the Asians. White countries are for EVERYBODY. “Anti-Racist” is a code word for anti-White.

In today’s episode we chat with Laura Fitz-Gerald, one of the key activists behind the fightwhitegenocide.com and BUGS (Bob’s Underground Seminar) project. We talk about the mantra movement and about its creator Bob Whitaker. Laura also gives us a quick update about the current situation in her homeland; Australia.

Robert Walker Whitaker, or Bob Whitaker as he was more commonly known as, (March 31, 1941-June 3, 2017) was an American professor, author, Reagan appointee and political activist for decades (we have partly him to thank for the fall of the Berlin wall). Before he died, he even ran for president in 2016 to get his messages out.  He is the creator of the mantra and he is the man who coined, or at least brought the term “anti-white” to the mainstream.

Few people know he was one of our biggest mentors and who inspired us to go into practical politics in the first place. He can rest in peace, knowing that his torched has passed on and now it’s up to all of us to finish the job. This one is for you, Bob!”
